Stevens, Messier set to retire?
Foxsports.com is reporting that Mark Messier and Scott Stevens may be set to announce their retirement from the NHL in the near future. If these rumors are true it would bring an end to 2 of the most stellar careers the NHL has ever seen.
If Messier does infact retire look for him to accept a position along side long time buddy Wayne Gretzky as an assistant coach to the Phoenix Coyotes. In Scott Stevens case, Lou Lamoriello states that he does have money in the budget for him to return, but an unnamed Devils’ player states that he thinks Stevens has already made his mind up to retire.
